City Council members ride along with Harlem cops, Mayor Adams ahead of ‘How Many Stops’ veto override vote

With one very notable absence, a handful of City Council members took up Mayor Eric Adams’ offer to ride along with NYPD members patrolling the streets of Harlem on Saturday night, ahead of Tuesday’s scheduled vote to override the mayor’s veto of the How Many Stops Act.

The council members joined a slew of cops riding in a police van on Jan. 27, responding at one point to a reported robbery. Fitted with bulletproof vests, the elected officials watched the chaotic scene unfold while Hizzoner and police brass explained that cops will now have to question locals in order to help locate the suspect.
